stability to the peace process requires mainly compelling the government of israel to comply with its obligations and commitments, particularly to seize all settlement activities in the occupied palestinian territories and in east jerusalem and its surroundings, and to abandon the annexation of partite wall and with an end to the policy of blockade in closures that restrict the lives of and movement of our people and deprived them of their basic human rights. our demand for the cessation of settlement activities, the lifting of the blockade, and putting an end to is look -- illegal israeli policies and practices do not constitute great conditions that are alien to the peace process. they are consistent with the implementation of obligations and commitments that have been agreed and reaffirmed by all the resolutions adopted since the very start of the political process. israel's implementation of these obligations and commitments will create the conducive environment for the success of the negotiations and will give credibility to the pledge to implement the final agreement. israel mus
